BARANGAY Babag Councilor Renante Bacarisas has surrendered on Tuesday morning, June 19, to Cebu City Councilor Dave Tumulak, two days after shooting his cousin in an argument.

Bacarisas said he had plans to surrender but he explained that he just "cooled off" to clear his mind.

"Plano jud nako sa pag-surrender kay kibaw ko nga nakalapas ko sa balaod," Bacarisas said, whose hands were covered with a blue cloth, while being interviewed by reporters inside the office of Tumulak.

Last Sunday, June 17, Bacarisas allegedly shot George Ibona twice after an argument.
